§ 26. Captain Earl WINTERTON
asked the Secretary for the Colonies whether native labourers have been brought from British South Africa to work at military and naval ports in France; and, if so, will they be brought to ports in this country 1798 under the same conditions under which they work in France and thus release for the Army a considerable body of male white workers?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
A contingent of native labourers is being recruited in South Africa for non-combatant duties behind the British lines in France. The whole subject is being carefully considered by the Government.
§ Mr. OUTHWAITE
May I take it that the subject of the employment of blacks in this country is under the consideration of the Government?
